Common misconceptions with autism in the workplace

For those on the autism spectrum, being lumped into a stereotype happens all too often. When it comes to a work environment, those stereotypes can be exacerbated. Popular culture tends to present someone with autism as being a highly intelligent introvert with little communication skills, but that's not always the case, says Dr. Katherine Loveland, a psychiatric and behavioral science professor at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston Medical School. ?Everything you know about?

Michigan State, Louisville defy odds on way to NCAA East final

The Spartans (26-11), the Tournament's lowest remaining seed, lost three of their top leading scorers from last season. The point guard is averaging 9.1 points and 2.7 assists and has committed just 16 turnovers in his past 10 games. The 6-8 player, who has declared his intention to enter the NBA draft in June, is as much a threat from 16 feet as he is dunking. The Spartans, who had back-to-back Final Four appearances in 2009 and '10, play a scrappy style that leans on defense and transition. The Spartans are motivated after losing to eventual champion Connecticut in last year's regional final.

Collision prompts closing of Ship Channel

[...] ship crash in less than a week causes halt to barge traffic after fuel additive spilled into waters The Houston Ship Channel was closed to all traffic Monday after two ships, including one carrying toxic chemicals, collided into each other at a narrow spot near the foggy entrance. The 600-foot Danish-flagged Carla Maersk was carrying about 216,000 barrels of MTBE, a fuel additive, while the 623-foot Conti Peridot is a steel carrier, U.S. Coast Guard officials said. Coast Guard officials said the hole in the ship remains but any remaining MTBE is below the waterline and doesn't pose a risk. The fuel additive is a colorless liquid with a distinctive anesthetic-like odor, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Hilarious Hair Growth Ad from 1952! – This Forgotten Day in Houston

March 10, 1952: On this forgotten day in 1952, a ridiculous ad in the Chronicle suggested that S.J. Mueller, Director of Trichologists, could reverse balding by regrowing hair. Perhaps the most ridiculous thing about the ad, were it?s claims for why baldness occurs in the first place! It claimed, ?Dandruff and other debris may clog the tube to impede growth. Bacteria may attack the hair bulb. Tight scalp may pinch off the blood supply.? The Mueller Hair Experts? office, at the corner of Main and Preston, even offered free parking to clients. The same year this ad appeared, the Federal Trade Commission ordered Mueller to ?cease and desist any advertisements [...]

Local Restaurants Serving Horse Meat? – This Forgotten Day in Houston

March 9, 1951: On this day, Houston?s chief veterinarian was pushing to add a provision to the city?s horse meat law. At the time, it was illegal to sell horse meat for human consumption. The vet wanted horse slaughterers to add charcoal to the horse meat so that it could be identified after cooking. Basically, uncolored horse meat looked just like regular cow beef. If the horse meat was artificially colored, then inspectors could more easily identify if restaurants were serving stallion burgers. However, since horse meat was used for pet food, some slaughterhouses were opposed to the idea of coloring the meat because they believed cats and dogs would [...]

Fall Out Boy rocks RodeoHouston

Fall Out Boy likely isn't the first act most folks think of to headline RodeoHouston. (Or the second, or the fifth.) But the band quickly adapted to its new surroundings. The set consisted of familiar hits ("Sugar, We're Goin' Down," "This Ain't a Scene, It's An Arms Race," "Dance, Dance") and songs from "American Beauty/American Psycho," the band's sixth studio album that debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 earlier this year.
